between china and the united states of how to resolve this so it did not flare up during the critical meetings that secretary clinton would be having in beijing. now we learned that chen has left the embassy voluntarily, is getting medical treatment here in beijing, and has been reunited with his family. andrew? >> stan, does the mere fact that xinhua is publicly reporting this, telling the chinese people what's been happening, does that suggest that chen himself could be out of danger from any sort of backlash from chinese authorities on his escape from the house arrest and that decision to go to the u.s. embassy? >> reporter: we're getting into areas of conjecture here, but you can read something from this statement. while there's been an information blackout on the chinese side, it hasn't been carried on state media, social media has been blocked. search terms connected with chen guangcheng have been blocked on the internet. while that's been happening, we've been reporting it freely on international media. as you're aware, often when we report things the chinese don't want getting
is the other part of the message, andrew. that is, this drawing the line with the united states and demanding the u.s. apologize to china for allowing one of its citizens, the chinese citizen to enter the embassy, and to give refuge to that citizen in the embassy, someone that china has considered in the past an enemy of the state. we need to put this in context and let you know about chen guangcheng, those who haven't been following this closely. he's a blind activist, a self-taught lawyer, someone who testified against forced abortions in china under the one child policy here. he spent four years in prison after organizing demonstrations, allegedly disrupting traffic and damaging property. after coming out of prison, he's been held the past 18 months under lock and key 24/7 house arrest. only in the last week or so did he manage to escape and get into beijing, touching off the events we've seen unfold in recent days, leading to the fact now that apparently he's out of the embassy getting treatment, reuniting with his family at a beijing medical facility. >> stan, thank you very much for tha
right now. a short time later, just about half an hour ago, mr. obama spoke to the united states laying out his vision for ending america's longest war. saying afghanistan is where the war began and where it will end. here's a portion of his address. >> today i signed a historic agreement between the united states and afghanistan that defines a new kind of relationship between our countries. a future in which afghans are responsible for the security of their nation and we build an equal partnership between two sovereign states. a future in which war ends and new chapter begins. ten years ago, the united states and our allies went to war to make sure that al qaeda could never again use this country to launch attacks against us. despite initial success, for a number of reasons, this war has taken longer than most anticipated. over the last three years, the tide has turned. we broke the taliban's momentum. we built strong afghan security forces. we devastated al qaeda's leadership, taking out over 20 of their leaders. one year ago, from the base here in afghanistan, our troops launched the
there its enormous hostility to the idea of the united states unilaterally getting involved in another muslim country, particularly if there is some kind of military or covert angle to this. >> part of the pressure has to be putting part of the strategy has to be putting pressure on russia, and the deputy national security advisor said this, we don't believe it's in russia's interest to be associated with the assad regime. what was he trying to say? what did he mean? >> i think they are hoping the obama administration is hoping the russians will see the assad regime is doomed, that it makes sense for them to begin repositioning themselves where they oppose the assad regime. there is no question russia will not cooperate in this venture. all russia will do is dragged along kicking and screaming, if it believes this transition will happen anyway. so the hope here is to create a kind of dynamic in which the russians realize all right, since this is going to happen, in a year or so, or maybe sooner, we might as well stop being the principle obstacle to a post-assad syria. >> bob, do you th
the president was not born in the united states. >> so then how come someone doesn't say donald trump is wrong! we're going to tell -- >> donald trump is wrong. the president was born in the united states. >> so, as i mentioned it has been more than a year since these questions should have stopped. president obama released his long form birth certificate, april last year. he released it to settle the issue once and for all, released it because people like donald trump are going on and on making unfounded claims about the president's birth place. as all of that was swirling, just before mr. obama released his birth certificate, we sent gary tuchman all the way to hawaii to look at the facts. imagine that, the facts, behind the whole entire manufactured controversy. here is what he found. >> reporter: the honolulu star bulletin newspaper in august, 1961, declares mr. and mrs. ba ram h. obama -- had given birth to a son. a simple announcement that has become part of a complex web of conspiracy theories. with one question looming above all others. >> was president obama born in the united states?
. there are many people in the united states who tire of this and say you're throwing weapons into a powder keg into a dangerous situation. we don't know fully. there may be jihadist elements amongst the rebels. to them you say what? >> if there are jihadist elements, it's actually a great share of the blame is born by the international community which did not come to the rescue. when the cavalry did not come in, when the cavalry of the good guys of nato, cavalry of the united nations didn't come, well then people have to fend for themselves. that's it. >> we're going to have a lot more with ivan and professor ajami throughout this hour. as the violence continues in syria, some of you are asking, where is the international community? where is the united states? we'll talk to senator john mccain in a moment. he's saying where is president barack obama. i spoke to him earlier today as our special 360 report continues. but, i'm about to change that. ♪ every little baby wants 50% more cash... ♪ phhht! fine, you try.

"syria deadly lives." this alleged cease fire brokered by the special envoy kofi annan. this went into effect april 12th. since then opposition groups claim more than 1,000 syrians have been killed in the last month. the syrian regime won't let us in to confirm the numbers. the regime claims the cease fire has been broken by what they call armed terrorists. that's what they've called anybody who spoke out against the regime for the last 14 months. here's what susan wright said when i asked her that, the syrian government maintains that this cease fire was broken by, quote, a

on board aircrafts flying to the united states. they have a lot of the necessary components and know how at their disposal in an environment they can work on these devices. >> what are the questions u.s. intelligence want to understand about the device, about the people behind it. >> i think the main thing is, who made it? he favors the use of petn. how is it going to be detonated, as bob mentioned, if you're using plastic syringes to detonate it on an aircraft, it's not going to be detected before you get it on the aircraft. is it similar to the plot using 80 grams of petn that was being shipped in the united states and chicago. in that case, that particular printer had gone through all types of screening, machines and other devices. the saudi arabian intelligence service provided detailed information to look at that particular package, the british authorities used dogs and the dogs sniffed that package and couldn't detect 80 grams of petn a mere few irnls from their noses. materials like that are very easily concealed, very hard to detect and depending on how they're packaged and how t
